LGSI can be given the authority to make decisions for an incapacitated adult in areas outlined by the court – personal, financial, residential, medical. LGSI contracts with the state of Louisiana Governor's Office of Elderly Affairs and the Louisiana Department of Health’s Offices for Citizens with Developmental Disabilities (OCDD) and Adult & Aging Services (OAAS) to provide curators for disabled individuals without willing, able, or appropriate family members, when they determine these individuals need someone to manage their affairs.

    Interdictions

    Interdiction is the legal process by which persons who are unable to make their own decisions in some life areas receive a curator (or curatrix, if female) to make these decisions for them.
